Airports etc. not in Greater London[edit]

Given that the title of this template is "Transport in London" not "Transport for London", is it really appropriate to include airports that are outside the Greater London boundary? I can kind of see the logic in including Stansted and Gatwick etc. (although I wouldn't argue if they were removed). London Oxford airport really isn't in London, despite its name, so I'd happily see that go, and Brize Norton seems to have no place here at all. Similarly, the M3 motorway is entirely outside of Greater London, and there are probably other non-London things on the list. I think I may be bold and make some culls, but feel free to revert and discuss if necessary. Perhaps the template should be renamed "Transport in Greater London" for clarity.

Changes made. I couldn't quite bring myself to removing Luton, Gatwick and Stansted, so I moved these to a new "Outside London" section. I did boldly get rid of Oxford and Lydd though, and Manchester Airports Group which only operates Stansted (outside London). Non-Greater London motorways also removed.
